The Joffrey Ballet which will be dancing a program of three works under the umbrella title, "Human Landscapes," is celebrating a different sort of landmark. In addition to presenting works by Jiri Kylian and James Kudelka - two late 20th century innovators - it is staging an 80th anniversary revivial of the landmark anti-war ballet "The Gree Table (A Danse Macabre in Eight Scenes)." Kurt Jooss' German Expressionist masterpiece has been a cornerstone of the company's repertoire since 1967.
